Amazing Fact About The Earth Number 3

Gravitation

If it there was no gravity on the Earth, we’d all float off into space. Don’t worry because when I tell you that you are constantly falling towards the Earth at an accelerating rate of 9.8 meters/second2 the fact that we are standing keeps us from falling. Earth gravity pills objects towards the center of the Earth.

Gravity comes from mass. The more mass an object has, the more gravity it will exert on objects around it. The amount of gravity that we experience falls off quickly over distance.

It is surprising that the force of gravity on Earth changes depending on the fact where we stand it is caused by Earth´s rotation. Gravity also decreases with altitude, the further you are away from Earth’s center the less gravity there is. This activity is trying to spin us off into space.
